ICS Introduces WAIV - A Mobile, Fixed-Asset Inventory Auditing Solution for J.D. Edwards Customers
JACKSONVILLE (September 11, 2001) - ICS, Inc., a leading software development and systems implementation firm based in Jacksonville, FL, announced the introduction of a new mobile solution for fixed asset inventory auditing - WA/V.
Built specifically for users of J.D. Edwards OneWorld® and WorldSoftware collaborative commerce solutions, WA/V is an ideal solution for government agencies and public service organizations that require a more efficient and accurate way to inventory fixed assets.
"The WA/V solution from ICS offered exactly what we were looking for at the City of Oceanside. We anticipate that WA/V will save approximately 1,000 labor hours per year by automating our asset inventory process" said Michael Sherwood, Director of Information Technologies, City of Oceanside, CA. "The application is smartly laid out, its integration with J.D. Edwards OneWorld Xe is very smooth, and we liked the fact that WA/V was built using the Microsoft toolset. If our estimates are close, we should receive full payback within one year."
"In addition to getting a jump on meeting GASB 34 requirements, we bought WA/V to improve our ability to manage our technical assets, such as computers, printers, laptops, and related items. In addition to making our inventory process more efficient, WA/V will help us track equipment, update asset condition status, and forecast equipment purchasing needs."
Using a scanner-equipped mobile handheld computer to scan asset tags (barcodes), WA/V eliminates data entry errors, improves efficiency of the auditing process, enables asset condition updates on a mobile basis, and facilitates compliance with GASB 1301 Riverplace Blvd. Statement 34.
